OKI C3300 printer: Horizontal stripes with negative copies

December 7, 2014 at 08:14:12
Specs: Macintosh
On my OKI C3300 (which I don't use often, ~1000 pages printed until now) I get horizontal stripes, for an example see https://www.dropbox.com/s/tyc8ft012...

The problem seems worst when I print in B&W; with color printing, the problem is less obvious.

I tried to clean the fuser as well as the drum under the black toner, but it did not make any difference. Interesting is the fact that the black stripes "mirror" a negative (white-ob-black) copy of stuff printed earlier on the page, you see it clearly with the "Print Demo Page" mirror image on the bottom stripe.

I always used original toner cartridges (only once actually), fuser etc lifetime is still near to 100% (as you can see on the status page itself).

Is there anything that can be done about it, or do I need to replace the printer or parts of it, and if so, which part?

Most likely the Imaging drum but possibly the fuser.

Even though the toner cartridge is almost new I'd go ahead and replace it or if there's a shop in your town that rebuilds them do that.

With at least some laser printers if a person gets impatient and tugs on the emerging page to pull it out faster you will get smears and after images on subsequent printed pages.
